Democratic White House candidate Robert Kennedy Jr., the nephew of former President John F. Kennedy, proclaimed a popular theory about his uncle’s death to be “beyond a reasonable doubt.”
President Kennedy’s assassination has sparked many conspiracy theories and rumors over the years, but one of the most popular remains the idea that the CIA was the mastermind behind his murder.
In an interview with John Catsimatidis on WABC 770 AM’s “Cats Roundtable”, Kennedy not only endorsed but emphatically approved of that idea.
“There is overwhelming evidence that the CIA was involved in his murder. I think it’s beyond a reasonable doubt at this point,” he said.
“The evidence is overwhelming that the CIA was involved in the murder, and in the cover-up.”
He cites the James Douglas book “JFK and the Unspeakable” as a compelling compilation of the evidence.
The US government’s official report, released September for 1964, was that shooter Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone and there was no credible evidence of a conspiracy to assassinate Kennedy.
Kennedy Rises the Ranks
Despite most sitting politicians gathering behind President Joe Biden, a recent poll shows Kennedy with support from 14% of those who voted for Biden in 2020.
In his campaign announcement, Kennedy called himself a truth-teller who will “end the division” between parties in the country.
“My mission over the next 18 months of this campaign and throughout my presidency,” he said at the time, “will be to end the corrupt merger of state and corporate power that is threatening now – threatening now – to impose a new kind of corporate feudalism in our country; to commoditize our children, our purple mountain’s majesty; to poison our children and our people with chemicals and pharmaceutical drugs; to strip-mine our assets; to hollow out the middle class and keep us in a constant state of war.”
Along with Marianne Williamson, he is currently the only other challenger to Biden’s reelection.
